  1. Hello

    Member Introduction
    Happy to be part of the forum. Does anyone have good advice on when/where to buy department 56 to get the best price. Just wondering if there is a good sale cadence, if I am patient. I know Micheal's is great for Lemax, just looking for good timing and locations for 56. Thank you for your help.

Haven't had any issues with this, but this year I am planning a walk thru in the garage also which will require more actors and probably better timing. With a normal pro haunt it is normal to wait in a line...
